If neurotomy means burning the nerves, then neurotic is????

I went to my pain management doc today to bitch about my back. It's been 10 months since my last procedure, which he says is a pretty good run, so we can do it all again. I'm scheduled for the right side to get the nerves burned from L3 down through S1 this Friday. Then we do the left side on Thursday the 23. It usually only takes me a couple of days to get better after each, so no problem. Since I work remote, I don't even miss time from work. I take my wireless laptop into bed and work from there.

Only problem is Scott found out he's going to be out of town this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I can get my mom to take the kids to school Friday morning, and to pick them up, spend the night and help me with the kids until I feel better sometime Saturday, but I have to find someone to take me to the surgery center, sit there and then bring me home. Not very exciting.

I hate begging things like this off of friends! I mean, I know it's part of being a friend - not just being there for the good stuff - but it doesn't make it any easier to ask someone to do that and just sit around for a couple of hours. I've got a couple of calls out to see if someone responds. I really hope so, because I need this done and don't want to have to reschedule it.

Blah. But outside of that I'm damn happy that I'm really close to being pain free for another 7 or 8 months (hope, hope, hope)

*EDIT* YAY! gene_bob is going to take me to the surgery center on Friday, so that's one load off my mind! Gene has seen me drunk, but never anesthitized (SP?)*laugh* Won't he have a funny blog for this weekend?
